The final event will be on Saturday June 27 when there will be a family social evening starting at 7.30pm. The cost of entry is £2 for adults while accompanied children are free.

The Sandra Chapman Centre specialises in treating cancer victims.

Karen Lovejoy, the centre's secretary, said: “We decided to raise money for the centre because many members of our community are terminally ill with cancer and are being supported by the Sandra Chapman Centre.”
